Skechers' Super Bowl 2013 Ad

Skechers can be pretty cool, but according to this Super Bowl teaser ad for the company's GOrun 2 running shoes, they can make you as fast (or faster) than the magnificent cheetah. Hey, don't they run 60 mph?

In this Discovery Channel-esque spot, exaggeration is king, as a muscly cheetah and a guy outfitted in GOrun 2 sneakers chase after a young gazelle. Hmm -- it’s probably more important for this guy to outrun the cheetah than catch the gazelle. Don’t try this at home, kids.

To find out how this chase ends and if the gazelle (or guy) lives, tune in to watch the San Francisco 49ers take on the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII, which airs Sunday, 2/3 at 6:30 PM on CBS.
